Who is in your path?

You never know who you might run into when walking down a path?  I woke up one Friday morning, got dressed and proceeded to put on my watch, when out of the blue God impressed my heart with the idea, “don’t get to attached to that watch”, your going to give it away!  Later that day walk down the path near the river in our city I ran across an old friend of mine.  He had been homeless and on the streets for years.  We had some interesting conversation through the unfocused eyes of this drunk man.  Then again out of the blue my friend asked me if he could have my watch?  Wow, well sure, I had been prepared for that!  As I slipped it off and quickly gave it to him, these words rolled off my lips, “it is time to seek God for your life”, and off he strolled in his drunken stupor.   Later that month he was at the end of his rope, about to die, and another servant of the Lord provided a way out.  He enrolled in the Salvation Army program and is now been sober and walking with the Lord for over 3 years.  I am grateful for the path, the watch and opportunities to give things away!  Who has shown up on your path of life?  What has God asked you to give away?  Would you be ready for such an opportunity?-Dan
